Let's give a shout out to Elizabeth from Niagara, NY, for her Aunt Ida's wonderful recipe
for this "Zucchini Pie". It is a simple but delicious veggie pie that everyone should try to
make. Now when all those zuchs from your garden come in and you are scratching your
head for a recipe, here it is. So thanks again to Elizabeth and her Aunt Ida.
1 lb Zucchini, peeled, cored and sliced in apple-like chunks (8 c)
3/4 cup Lemon juice
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 cup + 3/4 c + 1/4 c sugar
1 tsp + 1 tsp cinnamon
3 cup Flour
3/4 cup Packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place zucchini and lemon juice in a large saucepan.
cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 15
minutes. Add nutmeg, 1 c sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Blend until sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat.
To prepare crust, combine flour, 3/4 c sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Pat into
a greased 9x13" pan. Bake 10 minutes. Pour zucchini mixture, which will be very
watery, over crust. Bake 20 minutes more. Mix 1/4 c sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and
sprinkle over top of dessert. Bake 5 minutes more. Cool before cutting.
